When it comes to fitness and working out, my hubby is the complete opposite of me. While I have a hard time being motivated to stay consistent, and am just happy to get to my boxing class twice maybe three times a week, he on the other hand could not seem to be exercising enough. He works out 6 days a week, doing things ranging from lifting, crossfit, running, pilates, rock climbing, mountain biking and swimming. It makes me exhausted just to look at his workout schedule…
Have you ever seen the American Ninja Warrior competition on TV? Well, let me tell you, we are huge fans over here and we watch every episode religiously. Needless to say, it is my hubby’s ultimate dream to be able to one day compete on that show. Of course we know that it is practically impossible to make it on the show. Hence as sort of a substitution, he’s been doing various obstacle course races that he can find in the area these past several years.
His goal for himself when it comes to these races is not only to place well in his age group, but he also wants to beat out the ‘younger guys’. I personally don’t know how realistic he is with this, but he sure works hard towards it. 🙂
These races typically take place on Saturday mornings, while the children have swimming. Therefore, it was not until just a few weekends ago that we finally got the chance to see him running one of these infamous races.
After being there in person watching all these people race, I guess I could see why my hubby is so into it. It’s definitely a very challenging, but fun race (if you are into getting down and dirty) and I can see the appeal to him. In fact, both kids think that they might want to participate in a future kids obstacle course race themselves!
